AUBURN, N.H. – Visions of planting season may keep gardeners warm this time of year, but if you want to learn the rules of gardening from the ground up, here’s your chance.

Discover the ground rules of gardening in a workshop series beginning March 4, sponsored by UNH Cooperative Extension, Rockingham County Master Gardeners, the Massabesic Audubon Center, and NOFA-New Hampshire.

Ron Christie, UNH Cooperative Extension agriculture program coordinator, will lead the series, taking gardeners through every phase of the growing season.
